My Topps Prime 9 Redemptions

While I was breaking my hobby box of 2011 Topps Series 2, I pulled 2 of the Prime 9 redemption cards.  I got redemption cards #1 and #2.  The idea is that you take them to your local card shop during the specified week on each given card and you get a limited edition card of the player of the week.  Basically Topps is trying to drive foot traffic into the hobby shops.

My fiancee was nice enough to drop by the "local" card shop during the first week and pick up  this Johnny Bench:

I got to go back the second week and pick up this Albert Pujols (along with some 800ct boxes):

I'm not particularly attached to either one of them so they are both for trade.

  1. I got redemptions #s 2 & 3. Which I sent to another blogger to redeem for me since I don't have a shop locally. The shop owner threw in the Bench when the Pujols was redeemed.

    Sounds like the redemption has been a bit of a failure.
